Many websites have taken the pics and info which I had posted in Team-Bhp about Brezza accident and all have mentioned the source too. . I want to update that job card is done and quoted one month time for repairs. I will post the details about same once I get it.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

I got a reminder call for the first servicing in month. What things are done during it? Is the engine oil changed? Any idea which engine oil brand Maruti uses? My uncle's swift runs really quite with Castrol Magnatec. Should we not use synthetic oils early on in the life of the engine?

It seems cartoq people taken your story and pics from this thread and made a story out of that.

What would you consider this.. plagiarism?

Oil change will be scheduled at your 10k Km mark. However, many people recommend change of oil much earlier. You can try searching around a bit to see what suits your need and how you would want to go around.

First service will just be a routine check then.

Well the first service is just a check up to ensure that the oil, coolant and other liquid levels are alright. They also check if all the electricals are working fine. Yes, they do a wash as well. Nothing else is done to the car. If you go through the owners manual there is a checklist for each service. Go through that and you would get a fair idea of what exactly is done.

As for the oil change, I would suggest stick to the regular mineral oil till at least 10K and post that you can move over to the synthetic ones. Whether you want to do an oil change or not before 10K is totally up to you.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Hello guys,

I am getting delivery of zdi+(red,black) tomorrow.
I am going to complete the payment today.
According to my SA, the car will arrive to stockyard this evening and I would be able to get the delivery tomorrow afternoon.

I am thinking about getting following accessories mentioned in the pdf of official accessories posted in the thread. (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attach...aw_low_res.pdf) (Credits: Leoshashi)
  • Mud flaps
  • Auto-dimming IRVM
  • Designer Mat
  • High Performance bulb
  • Steering leather wrap
  • Variable Color Interior Lamp
  • Variable Illuminated Door Sill Guard
  • Front Grille Garnish
  • Fog Lamp Garnish
  • Door Visor
  • Seat covers(May be in next couple of weeks)

Guys, please let me know if I have missed any essential accessory or I have included one which makes no sense.

I am not sure about Front Grille Garnish, Fog Lamp Garnish and Door Visor. What do you guys think about its effect on overall looks? Also, I am confused between Variable Illuminated Door Sill Guard vs Stainless Steel Door Sill Guard

Regarding pricing of accessories, is there any accessory in the list that is overpriced and I should get aftermarket?

And the most important question, did any of you guys get any discount on Brezza or any accessory? I haven't asked for it yet but I don't think there would be any.

If you are going for so many accessories, try the package that they offer for 29000. The grey one. Only the IVRM will be missing in that. Anyways things will always be costlier at the dealer.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

If Maruti has no plan to introduce the international Vitara here, can we expect a Vitara Brezza Grand with the following (My definition of an "SUV" ):
  • 4.5m in length
  • 7 seater
  • 1.6L DDiS / Petrol engine
  • 220mm ground clearance
  • Switchable 4WD
  • Sunroof
  • Bonnet scoop
  • Price around 9L for base Petrol, 10L for base Diesel variants.

At 9 lakhs. Double that amount.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

How we wish if they could feed the machine the stretched Brezza picture and it would start putting out the bigger Brezza Grands

Looks handsome though and Maruti might just use the current one to create a bigger Grand version and save money and make lots of money.

Availability of the 1.6 diesel has really opened up new opportunities for them to move up the ladder.

My calculation goes like this:

Current 1.3L Diesel costs 7L ex-showroom Delhi.
Then a 1.6L Petrol can be priced 50K less, at 6.5L.
Additional tax of 50K will come into picture. (effective price: 7L) (an SHVS technique can nullify it).
Add 1L for the 4WD option (effective price: 8L)
Add 1L for the extra metal, 2 more seats and sunroof etc (effective price: 9L)

Add 2-3 lakhs of profit margins, cost of better materials for a premium offering and research money into it.
